Looks like a ranch hand bumper, things are beefy as F. Had one in my old tow rig, the powder coat on them holds up rly good too. All around good bumpers and they arent crazy expensive.

I hear good thing about EFI live depending on the tuner... I love my minimaxx though... just gets a bit squirly when the roads are wet.

Its all in how you drive it TBH I can average 18 around town and 23 on the highway with the cruse set at 65 all on the max setting. A lot of efi tuners will tell you the same thing.

I had to drop some coin on a dual disk clutch. Shop around most guys should be able to tune your trans and stay tow safe.

Good luck with the 68Rfe might as well budget for at least a torque converter

You do realize that any modern diesel truck will run circles around that 454 while using half the fuel right?

Maybe. ;) depends on what toys I've added on. And I can tell you that in low traction situations I can out pull my GPAs 13 f350... I would be interested in hooking chains on asphalt and seeing what happened.

And to be honest it depends. I get 10 to 12 pulling a load. 14 is best cruising unloaded. What do stock mid 2000 model diesels get? My grandpas 13' gets 14-17 all stock him driving it like a 78 year old man. He gets 14 pulling. So I get a few less miles but have nothing compared to the overhead costs... his truck does pull very nice though!

For right now its mostly stock. But kicking around a SC.
